CFB Power Ratings

Back to class. The SSA Power Ratings are like grades for school. A rating in the 90s means you’re at the top of the class while a rating below 60 means you’re failing. The difference in ratings is measured in points. A team rated 90 is expected to beat a team rated 80 by 10 points on a neutral field. Our modeling suggest home field is worth 3 points (just under 3 points actually) so be sure to factor in home field when using these numbers.
